not sure how i feel about this given that we've just gotten out of the two headed monster scenario (which everyone agreed was bad).With Walsh gone, Larry Bird gets to run the show in Indiana, where he has a reputation for attending practice once a week, maybe. That's why Indiana is looking for a GM who will come in and work the phones, deal with scouts, meet with coach Jim O'Brien and his assistants and make suggestions to Bird.

who has been handling the pacers' day to day operations the past few years anyway? it seems unlikely to have been walsh (health), nor bird (disinclined). was it morway? we knew he was involved in trades at least. if bird brings in a new gm, does it mean morway is on his way out?
i think we're all a bit tired of the incomprehensible hierarchy that seems to be the pacers organization. on the other hand, if this is part of bird's move to clean house and put in place a leaner, meaner structure, then i'm all for it.
